Mitchell County, North Carolina
Justices of the Peace
Resignations and Applications
Index, 1871-1897


These documents relating to Justices of the Peace of Mitchell County were found at the North Carolina State Archives, Mitchell County Miscellaneous Documents, Box 2. This table does not include all the Justices of the Peace for the period 1871-1897, but it does index most of the documents found at the State Archives. (Three documents are not fully indexed because of the poor quality of my copies.) JPs and candidates are in bold, other signers are in regular letters.
